I bought a 45-70 caliber recently, to get back into deer hunting. A bit of overkill, but I will be in Northern Maine (above Caribou) where I grew up, and the opportunity for Moose is there, thus the higher caliber choice.
Apparently the "Doe" population is getting a bit thin up there these days (I haven't been back in a few years), and unless I want a Buck (tougher meat), I've been encouraged to go after a Moose.
I have no experience with Moose hunting, so I'll ask.........will "one shot" take em down? They are pretty strong and bull-headed. I want a "clean kill" to harvest the meat.
How can I best be assured that clean kill without incident?
